Bill, you may be getting some serious misinformation about the protests.
There has been a concerted effort by right-wing counter demonstrators including
the police to sabotage an orderly protest by introducing shills who start violent
disruptions. This has been going on ever since the Vietnam War protests and even
before then back to the labor struggle times.

The right to peaceful protest is being sabotaged by an out-of-control police department spearheaded by right-wing special interests. Provocation is a manipulative tool used here to invalidate a reasonable protest.
